msi 970a-g45 with amd fx-6100 wont post past Phase 1 CPU power.


Hello all,

I was helping a co-worker build 2 new computers, once the parts arrive I did a breadboard test and found both boards wouldn't post. Not really caring because it was my day off I tried my known good parts in it all except CPU and submitted a RMA for the motherboards. I receive the motherboards about a week later and attempt to breadboard again alas same symptoms. I then pull out the manual because the speaker was providing no indication. I notice that CPU is only hitting Phase 1 power, we test my Phenom II x6 1100T 3.30 GHz in the motherboards and they post instantly. So we decide to RMA the CPU's after tiger decided to mess up and not ship them we wait 2 weeks for them to arrive. Today I go to breadboard again and the same thing happens. Any input would be greatly appreciated i'm at a loss 🙁

(update) I updated the bios from 1.0 to 1.2 and was able to post with the fx-6100. 🙂
